Hilltop Lake fishing – early July

With Canada Day and the 4th of July in the same week, summer holidays are in full swing. The first week of July is traditionally a great time to be on the lakes. Canada Day on Hilltop Lake Sue and Den Oksanen caught and released walleyes in the rain, in the sun, in the wind and in no wind.

Hilltop Lake has a nice sand beach – great for swimming, a sauna, covered deck and screened porch. The cabin has three bedrooms and is set up well for a group of couples or a family. Fishing contests for the privilege of doing dishes kept the guys on their toes.

A few walleyes made the frying pan, but everything else went back in the lake. Of course, the best eaters are about 16 inches but it certainly fun to land a few monsters too. The surest sign of a healthy lake is a good cross section of fish sizes. All small or all big is not necessarily good.

Hilltop Lake is one of those lakes where walleye of all sizes are caught regularly and often.
